A Classic Metal Axe with Modern Metal Tone!

The Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads solidbody electric guitar continues the metal legacy set down by Jackson shortly after Randy Rhoads's death in 1982. Metal has come a long way since the days of Ozzy Osbourne, and today's metal calls for a hotter, more aggressive tone than ever before. With modern innovations such as a compound-radius neck and Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB at the bridge and a Jazz SH-2 at the neck, the RRT-5 combines traditional Jackson style with modern performance features. If killer looks and classic style aren't enough, then Sweetwater's got the guitar for you: the Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads.

Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Compound-radius is perfect for both riffing and soloing
  • Seymour Duncan humbuckers take your tone into the heart of metal territory
  • Through-body maple neck plus strings-thru-body tailpiece delivers epic sustain
Compound-radius is perfect for both riffing and soloing

The Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads sports a compound-radius ebony fingerboard with jumbo frets. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 12" radius that keeps things nice and confortable for natural, relaxed chord work. Up top, a 16" radius lays it all out flat for effortless, low-action high-speed runs with monumental string bends without fretting out. The best of both worlds.

Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz pickups offer a ton of versatility

With a Seymour Duncan JB SH-4 at the bridge and a Jazz SH-2 at the neck, the RRT-5 gives you plenty of sonic options. Lean into the JB and and it'll push your amp into sweet overdrive. Back it off a bit and it cleans up nicely. At the neck, the Jazz pickup offers quintessential rhythm tones. Together, this classic combination gives you the right sound for any situation, especially rocking out!

Through-body maple neck plus strings-through-body tailpiece delivers epic sustain

From headstock to strap button, the Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads is set up for truly phenomenal sustain. First, there's the through-body maple neck, whose extreme hardness keeps your strings humming intensely with every note. To provide even better transfer between the strings and the body, Jackson used a strings-through-body tailpiece design. The result is sustain that seems to last forever!

Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A killer Randy Rhoads Jackson guitar made for modern metal players
  • Graphite reinforced 3-piece maple neck-though design with string-through-body tailpiece provides phenomenal sustain
  • Alder body adds extra resonance and midrange to your sound
  • Classic combination of Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz pickups covers a ton of sonic territory
  • Compound-radius fretboard makes chord work and soloing effortless
Rock out like a metal god with your Jackson RRT-5 Pro Series Rhoads solidbody electric guitar!

Simply awsome tone in lightweight package

This little wonder surprised me. I never expected to get this sound out of a guitar that wasnt a beast in size and weight. Pickups are perfect for this body type. I am surprised at the smooth neck and intonation thats dead on. I only added strap locks and locking tuners. I usually change the entire electronic package in my axes and I mean axes I believe I have 44 now. No wait 49 if you count the unfinished ones so this is high praise from a metal player using Gibsons and Esp and other overpriced monsters. Great deal for the price.
